Harper Jane Wiemerslage

As many of you know, our dear Paul and Jess had a beautiful baby girl on Feburary 18th 2017, whom they named Harper. Harper came into the world fighting a rare disorder called Gastroschisis. This occurs when an opening forms in the baby's abdominal wall and the bowel then develops outside of the baby's body.  Harper fought hard and proved to be strong and was on her way to recovery when recently Harper ran into another obstacle. During one of her doctors appointments they noticed that Harper's ventricles in her brain were enlarged and  that she has developed extra cebral fluid on her brain. This means multiple MRIs,  diagonistic tests and neurosurgery to remove the fluid. Harper is one tough cookie and has time and again proven her strength. We are confident that she  will soar through this hurdle as well.

Along the way,  Harper has been blessed with an incredible family that has proven to be her guiding light, she is one loved little girl. As her medical bills continue to climb,  it's important that her parents can continue to focus on her health and giving her the love she needs to fight through this. As we all know, Paul and Jess are two of the most caring and giving individuals we know and it is important that we give back in their time of need, to try and ease some of the financial burden. Thank you to all who have prayed and kept the Weimerslage family in your thoughts.
